iOS 9.3 Jailbreak Teased Just Hours After Beta Release

Just hours after the release of the first beta of iOS 9.3, an individual developer has teased an iOS 9.3 jailbreak.

We have yet to see a new jailbreak for the latest version of iOS, which is iOS 9.2, but that has been rumored to change very soon. Currently, iOS 9.2.1 is in its late beta stages and should see a final release within the next few weeks.

Luca Todesco, who goes by @qwertyoruiop on Twitter, recently teased an iOS 9.2 jailbreak on his iPhone 6 running iOS 9.2.1, and now the same guy is back showing off an iOS 9.3 jailbreak running the first beta of the new software.

This time around, though, instead of showing us just a screenshot, Todesco has a video showing off the proof that he has a working iOS 9.3 jailbreak.

In the video, Todesco navigates arounds iOS 9.3, showing off the new Night Shift feature, as well as opening up Cydia and displaying that the iPhone is indeed running the iOS 9.3 beta.

Of course, just like with his iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak, it’s unlikely that Todesco will release an iOS 9.3 jailbreak, and jailbreak teams like Pangu or TaiG will be responsible for releasing it, but it at least shows us that a jailbreak is possible for these versions of iOS, and it’s likely that TaiG or Pangu has a working jailbreak as well.

It’s likely that Todesco is using the same exploits that he used in his iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak, considering that he was able to jailbreak iOS 9.3 so quickly.

Of course, an iOS 9.3 jailbreak may not be entirely needed, as many jailbreakers say that the only reason they do jailbreak is to get F.lux, which is a jailbreak app that changes the display’s color temperature to a warmer variety to get rid of the blue hue during the night time.

iOS 9.3 now includes this feature natively, called Night Shift, and Todesco’s video shows off the settings for it.

F.lux is perhaps one of the most popular jailbreak features of all time, and the fact that Apple now has this feature built into iOS is a big deal.

Apple has been known to take jailbreak features and implement them natively in iOS, which has been great, but F.lux has always missed the list for some reason. However, it’s good to finally see it officially in iOS.

F.lux isn’t just available on iOS. It’s also available on Mac and Windows machines, so even if you don’t have a jailbroken iPhone, you can still use F.lux on your computer and get a feel for what Night Shift will offer in iOS 9.3.

Activator

One of the most popular jailbreak tweaks of all time is Activator, and it's easy to see why. Activator allows you to set up automations as well as shortcuts for all sorts of different actions, like automatically turning on your alarms for the next day and even changing songs using the volume buttons.

This is especially true now that Activator works on iOS 9.3.3, so you can combine it with everything that Appl has added to iOS 9 and iOS 9.3.3.

AppDrawer

One of the best features of Android is the app drawer, where all of your installed apps appear when you bring it up. Something like this is awesome, since you don't have to have all of your apps on the home screen, and now the feature is on iOS through Cydia thanks to AppDrawer.

Browser Changer

Do you use a web browser on your iPhone other than Safari? Then it might be nice to actually change iOS's default browser to your preferred one using Browser Changer. This means that any links from other apps will now open in the web browser of your choice and not just default to Safari.

Bytafont 3

iOS 9 comes with the new San Francisco font, but if you're not a huge fan of it, you can use Bytafont 3 to change the font to whatever you want. The possibilities are endless here.

DeleteForever

Not a big fan of the Recently Deleted folder in the Photos app? While there isn't an iOS 9 Cydia tweak to get rid of the folder, you can at least bypass it altogether when deleting a photo.

DeleteForever will allow you to permanently delete photos with one swoop, rather than deleting a photo and then having to delete it again from the Recently Deleted folder.
